Summer Vacation Resort Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

smallieobsession

Hi all, making a big change in our family summer vacation plans this year. Years past we've done the nice resort in the Dells thing with golf, waterparks, etc. This year we've decided to do the "minnesota" thing and spend a week in a cabin at a resort.

So, I'm looking for any suggestions, tips, etc.

Here's what we are looking for; clean 2-3 bedroom cabin, fairly modern, reasonable rates...probably in the range of $600-$1000 for the week. I'll need a boat and motor as well.

It will be my beautiful wife and I, two 15/16 yr old girls (and their bags of makeup, curling irons and about 5 swim suits per day;-)...two 9 yr old boys so...I'll need somewhere with a beach, and/or pool as well as any other recreational opps that might interest the above referenced groups.

Of course it should be on a GREAT fishing lake as well.

Any and all help much appreciated fellow FM'ers.

River Smallies ROCK!

KabDreaming,
You're mistaken about the resort with a pool, its not
Eagle Wing, its Idlewild, and it5 sets right next to the road, with the resort down the hill.

As for a resort with a beach, the best natural and biggest beach at a resort is Tomahawk Resort.

Good luck, guts <{{{{><

Been going to Kabetogama for 35 years and worked my way through college as a dockboy there. My recommedation for a place with a good sand beach, clean cabins and reasonable rates is Pine Aire Resort. Best beach on the lake and the owners are good people. Good boats and motors for rent, too.

If a pool is a must, there is only one resort with a pool and that is Eagle Wing. Never stayed there but it looks nice from the road.

Too many weeds on the beach at Tomahawk.

Voyageurs National Park is not like the Dells or places like Park Rapids, Brainerd, etc. Just about all the recreational activities are focused on the water, boating, fishing and hiking trails. Most of the resorts are of the older variety, but are very well maintained. A couple of them have made substantial improvements. Teenagers could be hard to please unless they like the outdoor activities that I've mentioned above.

Smallie, Check out the www. ************** website. Many of the resorts have lots of water toys, like water tramps, paddle boats, fun bugs, kayaks, etc. some of the bigger kids like that stuff better than just the beach. Check them out, remember, the more toys the happier the kids, and thus the happier are Mom and Dad. Good Luck Fishkab

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
